I’m a NYC physics teacher looking forward to attending my first modeling workshop this summer! I’m excited at the prospect of teaching a 9th grade physics course with modeling instruction, but it doesn’t seem like there are adapted 9th grade materials in the instructional resources. I notice that on the old website the Participant Resources link makes mention of them, but my new associate membership here doesn’t give me access to them. Is there any way I can get my hands on those materials? Even if they’re from several years back.
Larry Dukerich will post these two versions of mechanics units for 9th grade physics:
* by Kathy Malone and her colleagues at Shady Side Academy (added in 2010),
* by Rex & Debbie Rice & Gabe de la Paz at Clayton High School (added in 2007).
on the AMTA website, available only to AMTA members. — Jane Jackson
Kofi and Michael: Sorry for the delay, but we have now posted the page with information on Modeling physics first materials. Here’s a link to the page. There you will find 9th grade materials from two schools.
